Because who doesn't love stationery?

Husband spotted something interesting in a tiny subsoi (side street) while we were exploring Luang Prabang.

The little shop was like an installation, brimful of products made from saa paper, (made from mulberry bark.) Lanterns hung down on our head and papers, envelopes, notebooks and albums were piled high in neat lines. Each piece was beautiful in its own right but its strength was in the whole.

Mmm, paper heaven! How utterly glorious!

Jenny Beattie said...

Oh Helen, I was. So pretty.

Debs, isn't it? *grins*

Sue, it was up a little side street. I was quite surprised Husband told me about it. If it had been a handbag shop, he would've kept quiet.

Liz, I wanted to buy the whole place! I actually didn't buy anything because I bought similar stuff last year in Chiang Rai!

Anna, thank you.

Jen, paper heaven indeed.
